We are all a kid at heart sometime or another and whether you had an imaginary friend or not, Pete’s Dragon is the movie to see with the whole family. It comes out in theaters everyone on tomorrow, August 12th. This film will let your imagination run wild where anything is possible in a kid’s point of view. This movie is not like the 1977 original version if you have seen that one. It is a remake of the movie and so much better especially seeing Elliot the dragon come to life.
8 Reasons to Bring your Imagination to See Pete’s Dragon

After seeing this movie, I did not feel there were any parts that would scare the children. Disney made the movie so well to not do that. I would recommend kids ages 5 and up would be appropriate to take to the movie. They will enjoy this movie so much and I bet most of them will walk away with a new imaginary friend. Pete’s Dragon opens up in theaters everywhere on Friday, August 12!
About Pete’s Dragon
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.
